2023 Year In Review

Happy New Year dear reader! May this be the year that you attain your goals!

As we move forward into the new year, I like to reflect a bit on the year past. This is my chance to check what worked and what didn’t with the Simply Candi Nicole blog.

2023, the year I posted the least yet reaped the most rewards in views.

I’m pleased to share that this blog experienced its highest number of views last year (over 19,000 views). This figure is almost double what we had last year! I’m grateful.

I’m also happy to know that over 14000 of you stumbled across my corner of the internet and I hope the information you found was helpful. I’m excited that at least 5000 of you were repeat visitors.

What was the top-performing post?

Let me give you a second to guess… Here’s a hint, it’s all about the romance.

You guessed it, the top performing post or most viewed post was 18 Romantic Date Ideas You Can Do in Kingston.

I’m happy to know that so many of you have found a need for this post and it has continued to grow in reach year after year. To help the article maintain its relevance in 2023 I updated it by adding three new date ideas. One of which even landed me an opportunity to experience the date idea myself (I’ve been to most of the date ideas on the list but there are a few I’m yet to explore).

What worked?

Last year I focused on creating quality evergreen content. Posts like How To Change your Name After Marriage in Jamaica have become some of my top-ranking posts in less than a year.

Skincare and beauty is still in. You guys enjoyed checking out skincare product reviews like Bacne Be Gone: Cerave SA Body Wash Review and Naturium Glycolic Acid Body Wash Review and there will be much more of that this year. I’ve been trying new products and I have a lot to say.

What didn’t work?

Unfortunately, I missed my target of weekly posts. So for 2023, I’ll be focussing on managing my goals. For 2024 a more realistic goal of one post a month will be my aim.

Brand partnerships and collaborations also took a nose dive this year but I know there will be other opportunities in the future.

Final thoughts

All in all, 2023 was a successful year. We won some and we lost some but I’m glad about all the new and returning readers that made 2023 the year that it was. I look forward to serving you excellent content in 2024 and beyond.
